9 Point Plan
for Managing Community Transmission of COVID-19
PLAN UPDATED 10/01/20
The Maplewood Senior Living 9-Point Plan is an evidence-based roadmap for our communities to use in the fight against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. The Plan evolves over time, is based on the most current science, and reflects guidelines issued by the state departments of health and the CDC.
Keeping our residents, associates and families healthy and safe by working together.
With quarantines being lifted and restrictions loosening up there is an increased risk of exposure, infection and community transmission of Covid-19, especially for our residents. By following basic infection control measures, abiding by physical distancing guidelines and leveraging improved access to testing, we can substantially reduce the risk of community transmission. But we can’t do it unless all of us — associates, residents, and family members work together.
The Safer Together Program combines all of our knowledge about managing this virus and outlines 4 simple steps we can all take to protect one another while allowing as much independence and autonomy for our residents as possible.
STEP 1: Universal Source Control
Wear masks or face coverings.
STEP 2: Physical Distancing
Remain 6 feet apart as much as possible.
STEP 3: Infection Control
Wash your hands and sanitize frequently.
STEP 4: Testing
Get tested as often as indicated based on the new Maplewood Senior Living Testing Classification System.
